Touchless water technology is creating the wave of the future for public facilities. Motion-activated water-bottle fillers, sink faucets, and restroom flushers are being installed in a diverse array of publicly used facilities across the country. Schools, office buildings, banks, malls, airports, and workout centers are all making the switch to gesture-controlled water dispensers to ensure their buildings and occupants are healthy and happy.
Motion-activated water dispensers are designed to save you money, save water, prevent the spread of infectious diseases and protect your building’s occupants.
Here are 5 great reasons thousands of facilities are upgrading to touchless water technology.
1. Prevents the Spread of Illnesses
You might assume that restroom soap dispensers and sink faucets would be free of grime and germs. But these fixtures can accumulate millions of germs from the use of hundreds of different hands throughout the day. Touchless technology reduces bacterial and viral build-up on these surfaces and can help prevent the spread of highly infectious illnesses like norovirus, the flu, and the common cold. Prioritizing your student’s and staff’s health reduces the number of sick days spent away from school or the office and saves them the cost of a doctor’s visit.
2. Eco friendly
Motion-sensor restroom fixtures save millions of gallons of water a year by reducing the amount of water wasted by traditional water dispensers by timing a measured amount of liquid to complete daily tasks. You can save up to 11,000 gallons a year by upgrading to a low-flow motion-activated toilet!
One touchless water bottle filler prevents hundreds of thousands of single-use water bottles from being disposed of each year. Each bottle filler records the number of equivalent single-use plastic bottles that would otherwise be discarded in a landfill.
3. Saves Money
The upfront cost of these new fixtures may seem daunting to some but what many don’t expect is that this technology is designed to save money. Touchless water fixtures consistently use only a fraction of the water that mechanical systems use and when you save water you save money.
Studies have shown that switching to sensor faucets reduces your water bill by 60-80%. Upgrading to touchless technology is an investment that both pays for itself and grows its returns.
Sensor-controlled water faucets and flushers have fewer moving parts that would otherwise wear with use. Having fewer parts means few repairs are needed in the future and save you more money. These fixtures are also more sturdy against those who might be rough users such as kids or young adults.
5. Universal Accessibility
It is so important for public restrooms to be accessible for anyone and everyone who needs to use them. Motion-activated flushers and faucets make restrooms a comfortable space for those with our without disabilities. The gesture-activated technology is intuitive in nature and never out of reach. Ensure the health and safety of everyone who uses your facilities by upgrading to touchless water technology.
